Your attendance at this special evening will help us to continue the invaluable work we do with young people in West London. The Lyric uniquely combines its onstage work with innovative programmes that change the lives of young people from all walks of life including those from highly disadvantaged backgrounds such as ‘looked after children’, young offenders and those out of education and employment. We are a registered charity and are grateful for your support to deliver and grow this important work.
